I was born and raised in Houston, TX. After college at The University of Texas at Austin, I received my medical education from Kent State College of Podiatric Medicine in Ohio. I then attended Trinitas Regional Medical Center in Elizabeth, NJ for my reconstructive foot and ankle surgical residency training emphasizing in limb salvage and wound care. It was during my residency where I became experienced in all of the conservative and surgical scopes of Podiatry.
My passion for medicine began at a very early age when all I wanted to do was help those in need. I constantly volunteered at hospitals and shelters growing up and was part of Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA) during high school, winning the city of Houston championship in competition my sophomore year. During college, I was published in a research article at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX which further motivated me into pursuing my interest in medicine.
Most people are nervous when seeing the Doctor, so I try and make the setting as comfortable and relaxing as possible to ensure their mind is at ease. It is in my nature to treat patients as if they were my own family and believe in putting all of my effort into making sure everyone is treated medically and respectfully with care.
I enjoy spending quality time with my family. I love food, sports, traveling, movies, technology, and have a passion for cars.
Dr.Karen Hunt DPMPodiatrist
I grew up loving to read and learn and wanted to be a doctor and an artist. Even as a child, I loved medicine, and wanted to help people who felt ill. Originally from the St. Louis suburbs, I moved to Chicago in 1983, where I subsequently received a B.S. in biology at Northeastern Illinois University. I then began my studies at William Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine, also in Chicago. Graduating in 1994, I completed a residency at Sacred Heart Hospital, on Chicago's West Side, where I worked closely with employees and patients of different cultures, gaining both surgical and clinic experience. Although I have worked in several clinics, most of my career has involved house calls, an endeavor that is gratifying because I am able to render podiatry services for those who are unable or unwilling to leave the home, in the comfort of their home. In some ways, podiatry is an art, and sometimes provides the patient instant results and relief, which translates into a happy patient and happy podiatrist. I pride myself in bringing gentle, caring podiatric services to my patients, and strive to implement effective care plans, as well.
I reside with my Shih Tzu named Lulu Bean. I love animals, jogging, biking, friends, and nature. I am very happy to be working with my IHMS colleagues, and all of the services they have to offer and look forward to meeting you, too!
